    California is drowning in a sea of red ink. If they lose up to 100,000 jobs the rest of the residents need to step up to the plate and pay their fair share to the additional tax shortfall.

    And Governor Jerry Brown is not even on board! 100,000 potential job losses and where is the Democrat Governor? On the side of the environmentalists blocking the saving of 100,000 jobs! That is a lot of children on the streets with empty stomachs Governor Brown!

    The canal should have been widened 50 years ago when cargo ships got so large they could no longer traverse it. Better late than never I suppose, this will certainly help east coast port cities recover from the recession.

    Labor unions don't like competition. I think widening the Panama Canal is a great idea.
